Karunanidhi will be consulted on Sri Lanka, says Kamalnath

New Delhi, March 18, 2013 (IANS)

Three senior ministers will hold talks with DMK chief M. Karunanidhi, and any decision on voting on a resolution at the UN Human Rights Council on Sri Lanka will be taken after talking to allies, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath said Monday.

Kamal Nath said Home Minister P. Chidambaram, Defence Minister A.K. Antony and Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad will meet Karunanidhi in Chennai.

"Three senior ministers will meet him (Karunanidhi) and will discuss the UN resolution and how it should be presented. The government will decide after that," Nath told reporters.

Karunanidhi Sunday said his party would pull out of the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government if it did not amend the US resolution against Sri Lanka at the UNHRC to make it harsher.

He said he had written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi Saturday seeking to specifically blame Colombo for "genocide" of Tamils in that country.

He also called for a probe into the allegations of war crimes against the Tamil people.
Sri Lanka is under attack over the death of a large number of Tamil civilians during the final stages of the war that crushed the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) in 2009.

The DMK has 18 MPs in the Lok Sabha.
